With greater integration, more advanced workflows, and more creative flexibility, the latest software update for TriCaster 8000 introduces a whole new league of capabilities for publishers and producers creating large-scale, sophisticated multi-screen broadcasting, content publishing, and streaming
Enhanced Router Support
More intuitive management of upstream routers, with an improved workflow for higher input counts and enhanced command support for input labeling and automation.
3Play Native Support
Direct integration between TriCaster and 3Play enables cross-platform commands and automation (via macros) for remote operation of select 3Play functions. Build custom command programs and consolidate control between TriCaster and 3Play – reducing the number of operators required, and simplifying sophisticated, multi-system workflows.
Shared Storage Support
Access and playback files written to SAN and shared drives by TriCaster and 3Play systems on the same network – without having to import and host locally – to enhance facility integration and streamline workflows.
Vizrt Trio Support
Advanced native control of Vizrt Trio graphics systems to select and display CG pages, perform animations and more via macros. Combine operations between NewTek solutions and Vizrt Trio for sophisticated live production workflows with centralized control.
Explore new opportunities for external control, driving up to 2×24 different GPI signals using the JLCooper eBOX GPI system. GPI commands can be freely inserted into TriCaster macros, allowing external GPI events to be triggered by TriCaster operations.
Quad Monitor Support
Drive two additional VGA monitors or projectors, with advanced scaling and frame-rate processing. Each display port supports an independently selectable output signal, increasing flexibility for multi-screen monitoring and output.
Custom Multi-View Layout
Multi-view displays are now fully configurable, with sources and overlays selectable per viewport, enabling more flexible monitoring and allowing the operator to customize the workspace according to preference.
Secondary output channels now support expanded source selections. Choose to follow either of the primary outputs, or select any internal or external video source – with full frame-rate, color space and scaler – for more flexible output configuration.
Export Active Recordings
Export active ISO recordings to local storage or FTP while recording is in progress – and let post-production staff begin working with recorded content as soon as the program begins to reduce turnaround time.
Queue Active Recordings
Add local or shared ISO recordings to DDR playlists and the Publish queue while recording is in progress. Trim, playback or export even as recording and live production continues for instantaneous access to content being captured – locally or remotely – for playback, publishing or postproduction.
Network Tally Display
TriCaster intelligently detects connections between replay channels and network inputs, providing automatic tally configuration for TriCaster-3Play workflows and reducing the risk of mistakes happening on air.
Create basic highlight clips for instant playback and publishing with shortcut commands that insert the last 4 seconds of program output into your choice of DDR playlists, the Publish queue, or both-and expand your content-creation opportunities with no additional effort.
TW Controller Clip Marking
Clip marking with the TW controller now occurs on a continuously recording clip with adjustable In and Out points, rather than the TW controller starting and stopping recording to create clips with fixed In and Out points. This means the system retains full ISO recording functionality on all channels, even with TW controller in the workflow, extending playback control in single-channel replay workflows.
Automatic Media Retrieval
TriCaster now automatically locates and populates session media, even when drive settings have changed-saving valuable time spent searching for missing media and rebuilding sessions, and lessening the burden on operators to maintain a large volume and assortment of assets.
Media Browser now includes a Session Recordings category, so operators can readily locate and identify session recordings, including those that are currently in progress. Actively recording clips are also identified with a Record symbol overlay for increased visibility.
For faster navigation, organization and file management, you can choose the thumbnail image that represents a clip in DDRs and the Media Browser, including distinctive, individual thumbnail images for duplicate clips.
Advanced Rendering Engine
Optimized processing for image sampling, downscaling and warping results in higher-quality video images and even cleaner, better-looking video.
Photoshop Blending Modes
Combine mix/effect layers using any of the standard Adobe Photoshop blending modes for more sophisticated layering and compositing, new visual effects opportunities and higher production value.
Frame-Synchronized ISO Recording
Synchronizes frames of recorded signals to internal switcher timing, so you can ensure frame accuracy between ISO recordings – with or without camera genlock.
